4 medium potatoes
1/2 cup grated fat-free cheddar cheese
3 T very lean, cooked bacon bits
1/4 cup minced green onion


Scrub potatoes and pierce each with a fork. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven until soft; about 1 hour. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out centers, leaving a 1/4 inch shell. (Reserve removed potato for another use.) Cut potato halves lengthwise. Spray potato shells with butter-flavored spray, then place on a large baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 500 degree F oven for 15-20 minutes, until brown and crisp. Sprinkle evenly with cheese, bacon bits and green onion. Return to 400 degree F oven for 3 minutes longer to melt cheese. Serves 6.
